murakami captures life's struggle too well  
just writing down my current mood:

“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.

You really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.

And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.”

― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Arashi Pimp Post  
Notes: This pimp post was originally posted in [livejournal.com profile] aroma_teaparty. Because the community had been deleted, I decided to repost this to my own journal. I am still mourning over the loss of four pages of comments there... I know most of the links I posted here are broken but Arashi's streaming videos have been taken down really fast lately and I couldn't find the substitutes. Feel free to tell me if you have other links/sources to the videos. Now, I'm also a contributor at Arashidex (links below), where you can find more links and informations. Please credit me, [livejournal.com profile] jadeswallow and give a link back to this entry if you want to copy anything from this pimp post. Thanks!

If you’re in Asian fandom, you must have heard of Arashi, but who are they? Do you want to know more about them? Are you a newcomer in this fandom and confused about where you should start? Fear not because this pimp post will introduce you further of an idol group which is so popular in Japan that their popularity is labeled as a social phenomenon.

These will always be my favorite  
Ongoing Arashi fic recs. The list is not finished yet.

I've been keeping this for months and I'm going to keep adding fics into this list later. You may want to bookmark this entry in case you need it. Is there any brilliant fic out there that is not in my list yet? I might have missed a few, considering the amount of fics ever published in this fandom, so please comment with your recommended fics, I welcome any suggestion!

Notes, summaries, and warnings were copied from the author themselves. I restrained listing too many fics from the same author or I'll end up recommending all of their works. If you see the same author's name over and over again, then they're my favorites and I urge you to check out their fic comms for more brilliantly-written stories~

And the non-Arashi ones. Also ongoing. As you can tell, I haven't read much non-Arashi fics yet.

*insert usual excuses here*  
I'm sorry if this is the first entry you see after new year, but....


FRIENDS-CUT


If you can read THIS, that means you have survived the cut.

That being said, Happy New Year and good luck for 2012!

Genre: Het, Fluff
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] zheinpathos  (Thank you so much! ♥ )

Rating: G
Word count: 1,662
